"If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning: just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark. Dark would be without meaning. " - CS Lewis

Sure life has a meaning! There are clues hidden in nature.
The most number of spheres that can be in simultaneous contact? 3! A B C
The number of suns in our solar system? 1! A
The number of proteinogenic amino acids that are encoded by the standard genetic code? 20! A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T
The first number with more than one digit that can be written from base 2 to base 19 using only the digits 0 to 9? 19! A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S

But by you getting the "chance to create your own personal meaning of your own individual life" isn't that already giving life a point? hmm smilie

This is the kind of post that sounds great until you think for 2 seconds. No objective meaning means a pointless existence. Even if you create your own meaning, you're just fooling yourself into thinking you've found meaning. If life is meaningless, then everything we do is meaningless. It makes no difference whether I kill a baby or eat a tomato. They are both morally equivalent actions. In a billion years, the universe will have reached full entropy anyways, so everything will have dissolved into a cold homogeneous mix of particles.

@pantherfanatic This is the kind of post that sounds great until you think for 2 seconds. No objective meaning means a pointless...

Life is pointless, it doesn't matter whether you kill a baby or eat a tomato, just the morals of society and instincts have fooled you other wise, think about it, could you kill someone? Sure, nothing is stopping you but laws created by other humans, the only thing holding you back are these things created by other humans to regulate society so that we can work together towards a common goal which we all seem to have agreed is the progression of humanity as a species, at least, that's what it seems like we chose as our common goal looking back in history.

Well, a cosmic meaninglessness does not stop societies from creating moral codes based on what they find to be most beneficial to the happiness and survival of the community. Cosmic meaninglessness does not let you off the hook of the morality defined by society.

And if we are deceiving ourselves with meaning even though there is none, whatchya gonna do about it? If that's the truth, the truth hurts, so may as well take the silver lining of making meaning for yourself

Because they're absolutely pointless.

Reviews are posted for movies and books so consumers can decide whether or not they should see/read the product. We've already read the post, and it's therefore useless in that aspect.

Furthermore, there's already a set system for expressing agreement or disagreement with the post. If someone wants to view how others perceive the post, they can view the post score and/or the number of favorites. No one gives a fuck what AppAwesome thinks.

YeahIAm, if AppAwesome wasn't just taking you for a ride his comments would still be perfectly fine because he's giving his opinion on the post and telling us how he feels about it.

@Pug Wow I would have no motivation. The purpose to my life is to serve God. And I'll be happy with whatever his will is.

Didn't read all of those comments, but I did read the first few and some in between.

Let's be a little reflective.
Atheists, if a christian came up to you and tried to force their beliefs down your throat, you'd be pretty annoyed, right? And you'd have every right to be.
So how come it's suddenly perfectly all right for you to completely bash their beliefs? Aren't you also shoving your atheistic beliefs down their throats? Because obviously you know everything, right?
You're being very childish and immature and you clearly have some serious growing up to do.
I don't know why you feel this sort of self-entitlement simply because you're atheist.
You also fail to realize that atheists have one extremely vital trait in common with their religious brethren: both of you believe in something that cannot be proven by fact. Neither of you will know anything until death.

Maybe you guys should stop being such close-minded cockmonglers. I hope you realize that close-mindedness is exactly what's wrong with this world.

Basically, I'm trying to say that you're cancer.

@Pug Wow I would have no motivation. The purpose to my life is to serve God. And I'll be happy with whatever his will is.

The way I see it: if all life is meaningless, then Pug's allusion of meaning by serving God is just as valid as any allusion of meaning that YeahIAm comes up with. Whatever works for the individual, let them run with it.

If there IS objective meaning, though...well...that's just a scary thought since we all see the world so differently that a large majority would be screwed over as failures

That was both rude and ignorant. If there is no God and therefore no objective purpose, then neither of you will be better off. You will both die, and cease to exist. However, if Pug is right, and God exists, then he will be better off for obvious reasons.

There doesn't need to be predefined objective purpose to have someone be better off. Who's better off, you or Bill Gates?

Who said anything about the unknown? I know exactly who I'm serving.

Of course he's better off right now. But if there's no God, then what will that mean for him in 100 years? Nothing.

I barely talk religion on here, but I've been trying to put your comment into words for a long time. Kudos. Both sides of the ongoing religious debate should stop with the rudeness and/or close-mindedness, not just the Christians because, objectively, I'd say atheists are more commonly the culprits on this site.

Just clarifying things up here, Pug, I don't know what religion you do or don't believe in but over here in Catholic land we believe that God offers salvation and his love to everyone. It isn't contingent on you acceptance of Him or not.

Where does this full knowledge of His existence come from?

If he exposed Himself, we would still have free will. The only time we wouldn't is if he forced us to be robots. I don't see why a compassionate God would play games when eternal fate is on the line.

I don't want to be cancer, so I want to be clear I'm not bashing anyone.

If Christianity is true, then God only saves those who believe in him. I don't think He'll save an atheist, no matter how kind they were. Then, how can someone try to convince me God loves me, because if I choose to lead a life on logic rather than blind faith, I'll be sent to burn in flames for eternity? Is that the kind of God that's somehow "loving"? He loves everyone, but if I am a nonbeliever, I'll be sent to perish with Satan forever. Especially if I'm OK with what He considers sin, like homosexuality, premarital sex, etc.

Just be blunt about it: God, should He exist, is quite cruel. I don't want to be told I'm "loved" if He'll give me the same fate as Hitler purely because I have no reason to view religion as real. That's not my kind of love.

"tolerance" gets thrown around a lot. Just to clarify: you can tolerate something and still view it as 100% incorrect. If we all saw things the same way, we wouldn't have to tolerate them but would simply agree with each other. Therefore tolerance is an admission that you view your own ideas as correct and someone else's as mistaken, but simply making that admission in a respectful "agree to disagree" way.

"Exclusive" beliefs are thus no more intolerant than "inclusive" beliefs. We all make exclusive claims to truth but can choose to do so respectfully or not. Consider: if you call someone intolerant because they has an exclusive faith (for example, Christians who believe that the only road to salvation is through Jesus) , aren't you being equally exclusive in your beliefs by saying that inclusive beliefs are the only acceptable ones?

The key is to form beliefs based on our best reasons available to us, but understand and respect that others will disagree. Someone is only "intolerant" if they fail to respect others' views in their disagreement

that is actually something i struggled with myself. after my dad died i could not understand why God would ever let such a thing happen, i still don't. but after that (as corny as this sounds) i grew very close to God. he was, and still is, my best friend. he has healed me mentally and physically. last year i broke my back. at first i could not walk, so i prayed. the next day i was going up the stairs. idk, it's something you can't pass on with words.. but God is love. he is the definition of love. i would never want to serve a God who was not loving.

Wouldn't he want us to be saved than be happy for a small moment on earth? If God is so all-powerful he'd have the power to do better convincing, like maybe send another prophet, or mass miracles. I can't possibly trust that there's a supreme, all powerful being when all I have to look at are some mortals reading out of a book. Either way, I can't picture someone who loves their children to send them to hell for any reason at all. I chose this for myself because I have every reason in the world to support my decision. No sane God would blame me for that.

heaven is not for people who are "good enough". no one is good enough... i deserve hell. the only reason i'm going to heaven is because of faith. John 3:16 "everyone who believes shall not perish but have everlasting life". our deeds don't save us, faith does. however, with faith comes a brand new attitude. you WANT to serve God, not because you have to.. but because if you have true faith you end up loving God.

The anonymous athiest sure had a lot of questions but they didn't seem to have much to say to back up their claims. It's like want answers but they never really offer much for the argument. Anonymous athiest, you were very wrong to jump down pugs throat like that. If they have chosen to follow christ and live in His image, then how is that hurting you? When we're all dead and gone and Pug has achieved salvation, you're gonna wish you had decided to live a life like theirs. You are childish, ignorant, and quite immature, and I'll pray for you. I hope someday you're heart will be opened and you will know just how much god loves you. His love is so eternal and huge that we cant even explain it well enough. We can't fathom how great his love is.
Coming from a stranger, Pug is seems like an amazing person and i wish I could express my love for god half as good as they have. The light of god shines from them and it's pretty awesome!!!!
